Women

The Women’s Ministry of Crossway Church exists to strengthen the women of this church to glorify God in the work that he has given us to do, and to provide opportunities for us to encourage and serve one another.

We endeavor to accomplish this through a variety of venues, as we celebrate being women who are saved by grace, through faith, for the glory of God alone.

Upcoming Events

In addition to our members, all Women’s Ministry events at Crossway are planned with guests in mind. We’d love to have you join us at our next event! Please register via the Resource tab.
